Wolves to donate $250,000 to charities
The Chicago Wolves announced Wednesday they are donating $250,000 to five Chicago-area organizations -- $50,000 per charity -- to help them continue to provide important services to the community.
The Wolves have selected A Just Harvest, Common Pantry, Northern Illinois Food Bank, PAWS Chicago and South Suburban Humane Society as the beneficiaries of these donations.
"This hasn't been an easy year for anyone, but these organizations are doing everything they can to help so many in need," said Chicago Wolves owner and chairman Don Levin. "By providing these donations on behalf of our fans, we intend to finish 2020 on a positive note and build hope for a much better year ahead."
The Wolves have contacted each organization to make arrangements to deliver the donations next week.
The Wolves, founded in 1994, have earned four league championships, arranged forever homes for more than 1,500 dogs through their Adopt-A-Dog program and raised more than $6 million via Chicago Wolves Charities.
